Hi, I saw that package.json list minimal node version as 0.5.1. Is it by purpose? We tested it on 0.4.x and it seems to work fine.
Can you consider to adopt it for 0.4.x?
We still use 0.4.x branch because some critical for us modules with native code (like v8-profiler) still not work on 0.6.x.

reason was that 'fork' of the child_process-module was introduced with node v0.5.1.

As long as the fork-option is not true, 'spawn' will be used, so it works for 0.4.x.

I'll set the version to 0.4.x and document the reason.

Thanks a lot, added dependancy to tinyhook from tinyforever. Original forever was tremendously huge and brings lot of xtra dependencies.
